The speakers will discuss how humans have impacted the environment and ways that those impacts can be made less harmful, as well as what groundworks can be laid to work towards a more sustainable future.

The webinar will feature a panel discussion with the experts, after which the audience will have an opportunity to ask questions.

The webinar will be held from 6:30 to 8 p.m. on Zoom. People interested in attending can visit the webinar’s registration site. After registering, a link to log in to the webinar will be provided.
